Save Me A Seat
NSA is fairly relaxed but we still bow in and out like normal.
A few weeks back we go to bow out at the end of class. Rob the instructor sits down in front of the Kamiza. The rest of class including me sits down behind him. One student who has been around a couple years had a brain fart and sits down right next to Rob. While we try not to laugh, we could see Rob even cracking a smile but was unwavering. He waited patiently for the student to realize his error and line up with the rest of us. Then we bowed out as normal.
Funny but you definitely had to be there to really enjoy it. In many years of aikido I've never seen someone line up with the instructor by accident.
